clinton haters will find this move profound confirmation of without real conviction. a pol on the make, interested in only gaining real power. clinton backers will say no, she has principles but she has to win them over and has to make concessions like this. as always, the truth lies in between. politicians who want to wield their power properly always have to find the right balance between principle and it up. a key reason we have campaigns is they force the people who want the power to listen and react to volters. it is a key element of our political system when it works. so trash clinton for her flip- flop if you'd like or praise her for it, but understand that what she did is what all
